We don't seem to have a cockroach problem over here. In my 65 years I've never seen one locally, only when we go abroad. Ants can be, though, and annually I put some powder around the various door openings but then they aren't a huge problem either - they seem to respect the fact that they aren't welcome and stay away.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Actually I like the word ''rural'' but the others are gross indeed :D


Something gives me the feeling that this is an American list, am I right?

I recently dealt with an electrical fault caused by thousands of dead ants piled up inside an exterior junction box.  There was no sign that most of the bodies had been electrocuted - just a few had been incinerated directly by the arc - and there had been no fault trips before the completely-full box flashed over in damp weather, so it looks as though they had been using it as a mausoleum.   I remember a similar incident about 30 years ago in my grandmother's kitchen, but many of the ants in that instance were alive and still actively nest building.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.
